As a therapist, I understand how difficult it can be to reach out for help when you are overwhelmed with the problems of life. As a Christian therapist, I know finding a counselor with a spiritual based approach can be equally difficult. As your therapist, I will make sure you feel comfortable and confident in our relationship as we travel your journey together to help you uncover the solutions you need to get your life/family back to a place of well-being and satisfaction. I offer a bible-based Christian approach to counseling that also incorporates solid evidence-based therapy methods for individuals, couples and families.

My background is in individual therapy for depression, anxiety, stress, anger, grief, relationship issues, a wide range of life’s challenges, premarital and marital counseling and family issues. I take a person centered, humanistic approach with all my clients that focuses on communication, problem solving and unlocking your strengths.

I am a Licensed Associate Counselor at GoodWorks Counseling, where I am supervised by independently licensed LPC’s with over 35 years’ experience. GoodWorks counseling agency seeks to provide low cost quality counseling starting at $60/hr. to our community. I also offer In-home sessions when coming to the office is challenging (some limitations may apply).
